Caleb Smith State Park Preserve

581 West Jericho Turnpike

Nestled in the heart of Smithtown, Caleb Smith State Park Preserve is one of only two state nature preserves on Long Island. Within its 543 acres are a variety of habitats offering guests picturesque views that change with the seasons. Caleb Smith is a passive use park. This not only helps protect the local plant and wildlife populations but also allows visitors to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the quiet serenity that can only be found in nature.

Caleb Smith SP is one of the most scenic and quiet parks on LI which is great since it allows for peaceful walks around the various trails. There is a nice pond near the entrance as well as a museum showcasing the different species of wildlife that reside in the park. It is beautiful throughout the entire year however autumn is by far the best since the maple trees show brilliant shades of red and yellow. There are also tall pines and a quaint stream that runs through the park. Such a great place to unwind and get away for a few hours!

Beautiful scenic NYS nature preserve in Smithtown which was once home to a local hrist mill. The colonial home on the property is now a visitor/nature center with some local history dating back to Revolutionary War days. They also have a website with an overview, directions, and contact information.

Hiked most of the trails, not well marked, would have been lost without map and phone. Peacefull walk in the woods with limited scenic views compared to other parks on long island. Difficult to exit park onto highway.

Great place to just walk and take in the scenery. Looks like they are adding to the trails...looking forward to trying them out. The museum is nice to check out too. Friendly staff.

Well maintained, accessible, lovely trails through woods, hills, with ponds, streams, barns, fields. Saw a large red tailed hawk perched in a tree. Staff was helpful. Several trails just mile or so loops, mostly flat, easy.
